Statement on the Shooting at the Washington Navy Yard


Sep 16, 2013

Washington
- Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) issued the following statement on today’s shooting at the Washington Navy Yard:

“This has been a dark day, and we know more of them lie ahead for the families of the victims.  Hoping that they find comfort – and answers – is at the top of our minds.  Next, we ought to say ‘thank you’ to the first responders and law enforcement professionals – including Capitol Police – who did their jobs and saved lives.

“These events strike a particularly personal chord for all of us on Capitol Hill.  Every day, a special breed of men and women go to work at the Navy Yard, and they do so just blocks from our Capitol.  These are our neighbors and our defenders.  So I would ask all the members, officers, and staff of the House of Representatives to take a moment tonight to think about everyone at the Navy Yard, and keep them in your hearts.  I pray that we never forget their service and sacrifice.”
